I want to buy my DH either a North Face jacket or Under Armour hoodie for Valentines, but I know he's never tried on either. Most of his jackets are Large and one (from Areopostale) is XL. I'm thinking of going with Large. I want the jacket to be a surprise, but was wondering about sizing.

If you have one or the other, is the sizing true? A little big or small?

Thanks in advance for any help

My DH always gets an XL in everything. I bought him an Under Armour zip up for Christmas and it fits well. I would definitely say that it doesn't seem to run larger than usual.

If he has a jacket or hoodie that fits him well, get out the measuring tape and get the chest, waist, hip, and length measurements.

Then go to the Northface and UA websites and check the sizing charts.

Under Armour runs pretty true to size. If he wears a L in most things and an XL in Aero, I would go with a L in Under Armour. I just bought DS a few hoodies at the outlet and they fit him very well and true to size.

I feel they are true to size
